Caring for Kasey was wonderful.I started when she was 8wks old. Her mother made up this brilliant chart so I could write down our day..sleep,feedings,diaper changes.Then new foods,expressions,what she did,learned...colors,alphabet,numbers,animals,words.Then outings,parks,playgrounds,pools,feeding big coy fish!of course washing face&hands brushing teeth (and making up songs for it).Potty training, bath time,getting dressed.All the while working with Mom&Dad so we were all on the same page....time-outs...tantrums(all part of childcare).And I would hope that having a nanny around lessened the stress on her parents.My experience has been great.I still keep in touch with Kasey,she is 7 now.Where does the time go? Mikayla,was also a joy.started caring for her when she was 2 and a half mos. She is 4 now. Both jobs ended when they started daycare. Kasey in second grade is reading at 5th grade level. Mikayla,knew all her letters, numbers,colors,vowels,and lots of songs she can sing on her own.could spell her own name and write it, before she went to the daycare at 3yrs old. I had my first baby sitting job when I was 12,& baby sat all thru high school.after 2yr. College degree in art & interior design, I got married, had two children of my own. Had a career in sales/custom design furniture. In 1999 was blessed with my first grandson, in 2005 a second grandson! I enjoy infants and toddlers, so I decided to become a Nanny/Babysitter full time.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Freeport, NY

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Freeport can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Freeport Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in New York?
  • Do you have a New York driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
